A substation's temperature and humidity levels play a crucial role in determining the lifespan and efficiency of utility assets. By employing remote sensing technology, it becomes possible to ensure the well-being of grid assets. This involves monitoring the operating conditions of medium/low voltage street cabinets, such as temperature, humidity, vibration, door contact, and pulse, to detect unauthorized openings and overheating. Additionally, remote sensing enables the detection of lightning impact on critical network infrastructure by utilizing connected surge arresters. It can also help in identifying instances of theft involving copper cable drums through the use of trackers. Furthermore, monitoring overhead power lines allows for detecting electrical faults in segments connected to electric boxes located at the base of poles.
